Tell us the temps you get on idle and load on the cpu and the heatsink/fan you're currently using.

Wow man, replace the heatsink fan asap! Those are way to high of temps.

Because it went up $20 this is as cheap as you can get. Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus RR-B10-212P-G1 "Heatpipe Direct Contact" Long Life Sleeve 120mm CPU Cooler Compatible Intel Core i5 & Intel Core i7

However if you want a very good heatsink and fan i'd go with this one.Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus RR-B10-212P-G1 "Heatpipe Direct Contact" Long Life Sleeve 120mm CPU Cooler Compatible Intel Core i5 & Intel Core i7
